This weekend I took some pictures of the area that inspired my new western historical, A Tug At My Heart. I thought I'd share some of them with you.
This late in the fall, most of the pretty wildflowers have dried up, but we were able to capture pictures of the Indian Paintbrush that dots the hillside. The pretty orange flowers peek through the thick foliage and add lovely color to the landscape.
Everywhere you can see the small purple daisy-like flowers I've been told is chamomile. I talk about chamomile in my story. It's often used for tea.
In my story, A Tug At My Heart, Catherine and Zed share a picnic on the hillside where these flowers dot the view alongside the Indian Paintbrush. Even in the fall when most of the grasses are drying out, the flowers make it a lovely place to relax and have a picnic.
Tall sunflowers bloom at the bottom of what we call Rocky Ridge.
Years ago, that ridge was called Rattlesnake Pass. Even today, we see a lot of rattlesnakes going over that pass. The above picture is what Rocky Ridge looks like today.
A Tug At My Heart should be available shortly.
